Light show at the fountain

City workers turned on the fountain at the Commons on Friday. This is the scene at 10 p.m..

Summer may begin.

St. Patrick’s Day pipes are calling

Some images from the St. Patrick’s Day Parade, which rolled down Agricola Street on Saturday:

A window with lots of heart

A creative window display at Dee Dee’s Ice Cream shop on Cornwallis Street ushers in Valentine’s Day. Love the personalized touches. A sample of the messages markered on the cut-outs:

  • I love bikes
  • I love data cave 542
  • My cat, Sue
  • Matt Grimson
  • I love that our planet has a moon
  • Bacon strips, bacon strips, bacon strips, bacon strips, bacon strips
  • I love our glorious province and smiling @ strangers

Going crazy with scissors and red paper.

A loving nod to the good that's come from the nearby skating oval.

Itching for speedskates

The oval is starting to look like, well, a speedskating track. Workers at the Commons were tidying up the concrete pad Friday.

Free market rules on Cornwallis

If stuff is free, is it for sale?

HALIFAX – This impromptu Cornwallis Street sidewalk display was better than Kijiji’s free section.

Among the items up for sale for grabs late Tuesday was a skill saw, Jon Krakauer’s Into the Wild and a festive wreath. Other books revealed a reader who was a fan of Hollywood films and wilderness survival tactics.

The goodies, sitting near the corner of Maynard Street, were going fast as of 4 p.m. No end time was posted.
